CHICAGO — Oprah talks to former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson on The Oprah Winfrey Show on Monday, October 12.

During an emotional hour, Tyson opens up about his battles inside and outside the boxing ring as he talks about his childhood in Brooklyn and the bullying that made him a fighter—and his training under the legendary Cus D’Amato that made him a champ.
Tyson also discusses the tragic accident that took the life of his daughter Exodus in May this year.
